Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design and Display
Rumors suggest that the Huawei Mate 9 Pro will come with curved screen and it won’t have a 3.5mm jack, the speakers will be placed on the right side of the smartphone instead on the bottom. The Mate 9 Pro resembles to standard model Mate 9, it is a sleek, glossy, and a gorgeous handset with round edges.
The Mate 9 Pro will feature a 5.9-inch Quad HD display with 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution. The reason of using a QHD display on the Mate 9 Pro is because it works with Google’s Daydream VR. So users can experience virtual reality in the best possible way. It is not confirmed that the Mate 9 Pro will be Daydream VR compatible but if it supports the technology it will be first device from Huawei to support the new platform.
Huawei Mate 9 Pro Specifications
The Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design variant is rumored to feature 256GB internal storage coupled with 6GB of RAM. The device will come with same chipset HiSilicon Kirin 950, which was used to power Huawei Mate 8. It will run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, the lately launched Google Pixel also runs Android 7.0 Nougat which has received its first update as well.
The handset’s connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, DLNA, WiFi Direct, hotspot, and Bluetooth v4.2, A2DP, EDR, LE. It will support a fingerprint scanner on the backside of the device below camera sensor.
Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design Camera and Battery
The main selling point of Huawei Mate 9 Pro is its Leica 4x optical zoom camera, which differentiates the smartphone from its standard variant. The Chinese manufacturer has partnered with famous German optics enterprise for phone cameras thus we anticipate seeing the Mate 9 Pro with spectacular camera features. The Mate 9 is speculated to support dual camera configuration with the Leica logo between the two lenses. We expect that 4 lenses will function like iPhone 7 Plus or even better in different ways.
The Long Island moniker will house a larger battery than the Manhattan because it needs more power in order to lope a QHD display. At the moment, we are not certain which battery pack will be used in the smartphone, but we expect to see a bigger battery than the standard model.
